Contemplation Seats – a project on the neighbouring Marston Vale CRP line, with artist Sally Annett, was recently shortlisted for the ACoRP Community Rail Awards 2016 (under Category 2B ‘Community Art Schemes: Renewable & Smaller Projects’).
We were also delighted to learn that another Marston Vale CRP project had been shortlisted for a second award; a photographic competition – ‘The Essence of Community Rail’. The shortlisted photograph was taken by staff from Elstow School and features a young student proudly displaying a hand crafted railway ticket, which was used during a visit to Ridgmont Station Heritage Centre, Bedfordshire.
Winners were announced at the gala dinner and presentation evening in Southport on Thursday 29th September, 2016.
